Fic Feud Partners & Sabotages

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

:swordfight:~~ Fic Feud!! ~~:swordfight:

All right, feuders, it is time to reveal partners and get started with planning and writing!

First, about the requirements.

  • Stories must be 2 to 4 chapters long, with each chapter 1000 to 4000 words long.
  • Stories must be posted to the HPFT archive by April 15, with both you and your partner listed as an author.
  • You must contribute at least 1000 words.  You may collaborate with your partner on chapters, but we must be able to tell who wrote what.
  • Each chapter must be based around 4 elements from at least 3 different categories (so you will use a minimum of 8 elements for your story).

The categories:

Sentence(s) to include - any EXCEPT the one you submitted; you can edit tenses/pronouns to make it fit your story

Spoiler
  • Only ashes and smoldering embers remained.
  • Professor Snape opened the wrapped box to discover someone had dared to give him a bottle of shampoo for Christmas.
  • It would have been a pretty sight, had it not been for the tragic figure sprawled right in the middle.
  • It has become even more glaringly apparent that even the things deemed the most innocent by appearance are concealing some sort of sullied indecency.
  • “I didn’t realize you actually had feelings. I’m going to have to reset my entire mental image of you.”
  • It wasn't that she hated prunes, it was just that prunes hated her.
  • It was not a fall it was an attack on the floor.
  • Mighty Queen Hermione had faced her kingdom's crisis after  King Harry had left for hunting Dark Creatures.
  • All great failures start with one spectacularly bad idea.
  • That’s all well and good, but I’m pretty sure she’s dead.
  • "You're running a fever."
  • "I thought it sounded like a good idea at the time!""
  • He/she had broken his/her trust for the last time.
  • I would like to be more sociable than I am. But there is something in people where they want - or they need solitude for a while."
  • That was the curious thing about family, it introduced you to people you'd never otherwise have the inclination to meet. 
  • The package arrived on a Tuesday.

As a reminder, you can obviously go the easy route with picking elements that very easily fit together (e.g. questioning identity with genderfluid/genderqueer, marriage with romance, war with PTSD).  However, we challenge you to step outside the most obvious choices and blow us away with more creative combinations!

About the sabotages:  You have two choices here.  You and your partner must decide if you want to force your sabotagees to include 1 element OR block them from including 3 elements.  Post the sabotage you are giving in this thread by March 12.  Then, taking into account the sabotage you received, post your final choice about which elements you will use by March 15.

About scoring:  Each chapter written will receive participation points just like challenges do.  In addition, each person will be judged on creativity, focus on elements, plot cohesiveness, characterization, and mechanics. (If you write more than one chapter, your scores will be averaged.)  Your story's score will be the sum of your score and your partner's score.

About teamwork:  If you are having difficulty communicating with your partner, and it doesn't seem like they will be able to follow through, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE contact me or any other staff member with your concerns.  Likewise, if something comes up in your life and you need to drop out, let us know.  We do have some lovely back-up writer volunteers, so we should be able to find a new partner if it comes to that.

Now, without further ado, here finally are the partners!  You will be sabotaging the group BELOW you on the list.

@Alexis Black & @NPE
@Aphoride & @Dojh167
@clevernotbrilliant & @MalfoysAngel
@just.a.willow.tree & @StarFeather
@Levana & @pookha
@Phoenix Potioneer & @Pixileanin
@Rumpelstiltskin & @victoria_anne
@ShazaLupin & @Unwritten Curse  (you sabotage Alexis Black & NPE)


If these forms are helpful, have at 'em.

Hey,  just wanted to point out that in the Sentence section, the sixth one down appears to be two sentences. 

  • It wasn't that she hated prunes, it was just that prunes hated her. It was not a fall it was an attack on the floor.

Is that to be considered one Sentence or was it just a formatting error?

Looks like that is all the sabotages. :) If you haven't already, confer with your partner and make your final element choices for your stories. Reply to this thread by March 15 (approximately 72 hours from now) with your elements for at least two chapters. :)

(There's no penalty, meaning points deducted, for being a tiny bit late, exactly, other than that I will keep obnoxiously PMing you to ask and then finally asking my fellow staff members what we should do about it. :P And I don't know yet what they'd say. So just choose and post over the next three days, and we're all good.)

No need to reply, but I just wanted to check in and see how the writing is going. :) No trouble reaching your partner? Muses are cooperating? Real life is cooperating?
